Spiral

Purple lace dress Lovely Day USA - Light blue bow flats Gio Zanotti - Brown tote bag Madison Coach 

 

I have a soft spot for vintage anything. I also have a special place in my heart for the neighbourhood I grew up in and have the blessing to still live in. Being accustomed to 1940s homes in my surroundings, its no surprise I feel to close to them, like they are all old acquaintances. Like any friend, I appreciate them for many reasons. In this case, this unique home has a front porche with spiral columns, concrete baluster balcony, art deco lamps and hand painted floors. There is no other like it in the area, unfortunately its in really bad shape and apparently being used just for storage.
As I was going to the cleaners to pick up some garments I went by it and had to stop because I don't know for how much longer it will be there as skyscrapers take over, one home at a time.

Lovely dress - nice to see it again! That's sad about the house, aw. My city is slowly creeping outwards - more and more giant holes (getting closer to my house!) that turn into huge condo developments.

It's a shame that such a beautiful and unique place has fallen into disrepair!

I adore that dress and your flats! I definitely appreciate older things. They have so much more personality than newer buildings.

That is a really beautiful and unique porch. It makes me so sad to see old homes being torn down for new crappy ones, for wood to get covered with plastic, for character to be replaced by blandness.

It's a beautiful setting! I love that dress and the sleeves are gorgeous.
